As a pastor newish to Tacoma, the Preaching Peace group has quickly become a vital community for me. The pastors who come to Preaching Peace are the kind of pastors (and people!) I want in my life – grounded, curious, supportive, hilarious, always asking challenging questions (of the text, of each other, of our congregations, of God), real, imperfect, fun. My work is more sustainable, life-giving and fruitful because of these colleagues.
